Full description
This morning tour of Industry City is a great way to jumpstart your day in Brooklyn! Explore an off-the-beaten path neighborhood only 2 express subway stops from Manhattan, and treat yourself to unconventional souvenir shopping, a selection of treats both sweet and savory, and epic city skyline views! Your tour begins in the bustling neighborhood of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. This area grew up around the Bush Terminal, an industrial complex that would eventually become Industry City. 

Make your way over to the waterfront to present-day Industry City and discuss Bush Terminal’s role as the first intermodal manufacturing, warehousing and shipping complex in America. Bush Terminal revolutionized those industries and allowed the site to become an integral part of manufacturing in NYC for decades. Today, Industry City is a microcosm of various industries: the complex is home to over 450 independent businesses in a stunning industrial setting, and it truly is a place where different worlds collide. This tour will explore several of these modern-day artisans, giving you a unique opportunity to meet the makers themselves, from butchers to brewers, designers to woodworkers, and everything in between. 

This tour features four or five of the diverse companies that call Industry City home, and activities include sampling sweets at NYC’s oldest chocolate house, perusing luxury goods made on-premise at the complex’s very own design store, visiting artisans making anything from clothing to jewelry to furniture, and learning about the ways a whole-animal salumeria collaborates with its Industry City neighbors to produce some pretty unique condiments!  All along the way you will have the opportunity to buy items either for yourself or as gifts for friends and family. Best of all, your purchases will be supporting the local NYC economy. The tour will end in Industry City’s food hall, giving you the chance to grab some lunch or to attend one of the many food events or sample sales that are frequently hosted on-site. Alternately, venture inland to explore nearby attractions like the historic Greenwood Cemetery or the neighborhood of Sunset Park, known for its Asian and Latino communities.
